NYO&W #116 [NW2]; move to Delaware & Ulster RR, NY (22)

Now clear of the crossing, both locomotives will sit here for a while, so the crew of the D&U RR can help the rigging company tidy up a bit.

That ALCo RS36 (D&H #5017), being a Road Switcher, weighs in at 259,800 lbs. +/-, and looks so much larger that the Electro Motive Division NW2 Yard Switcher (NYO&W #116), which weighs in at 248,500 lbs. +/-.

A difference of only about 5 1/2 tons!
